Are You A Young Adult Considering A Career In Real Estate?

Our InspiRE Mentorship program was created to help young adults from underrepresented communities become licensed residential leasing agents, and experience what it’s like to have a career in real estate. Participants will take the residential leasing agent 15-hour pre-license course through the Real Estate Institute free of charge, Dream Town will pay for the residential leasing agent state licensing exam, provide training, and pair mentees with a seasoned Dream Town real estate broker for a 6-week experiential learning opportunity. After the program is completed, the participants are eligible to apply for a job at Dream Town or with any other Illinois real estate brokerage.

Program Highlights

  • Program is a 6-week commitment for 6–8 hours per week
